How to entitle your Aspera on Demand

Overview

Aspera On Demand products require an entitlement to work. This article describes how to entitle your system using the web interface of Server on Demand, Shares on Demand and Faspex on Demand.

Prerequisites

You should have received an entitlement from your Aspera sales contact. If you do not have an entitlement, please contact sales@asperasoft.com.

Details

The login page for Aspera On Demand web products will notify you if the application is not currently entitled. If the application is not currently entitled, only the administrator can login. The only page that the administrator can access is the entitlement page. The screenshots below show you the user experience when accessing the On Demand products for the first time.

Note: This process only entitles the underlying Aspera server, not the web application.

Server on Demand

1. Log in with your admin credentials to your Server on Demand web interface. If this is your first time logging in, your username is admin and your password is the AWS instance ID (for example, i-64b9acbc). Once you have logged in, you will be redirected to the entitlement page.

2. Enter your Customer ID and entitlement key, both of which you received from Aspera. Click Save to finish.

Shares on Demand

1. Log in with your admin credentials to your Server on Demand web interface. If this is your first time logging in, your username is admin and your password is the AWS instance ID (for example, i-64b9acbc). Once you have logged in, you will be redirected to the entitlement page.

2. Enter your Customer ID and entitlement key, both of which you received from Aspera. Click Save to finish.

Note: Once you save your entitlement for Shares, the Console will be automatically entitled within a few minutes. If you need to login to Console immediately (by clicking on the Console option in the upper right corner of your screen), you will be prompted to entitle the Console (the entitlement itself should be pre-populated in the web form). You can click save to completed the entitlement of Console.  Alternately, if you wait it gets entitled automatically.

Faspex on Demand

1. Log in with your admin credentials to your Faspex on Demand web interface. If this is your first time logging in, your username is admin and your password is the AWS instance ID (for example, i-64b9acbc). Once you have logged in, you will be redirected to the entitlement page.

2. Change the admin password.

3. Log in again with your new admin password. Enter your Customer ID and entitlement key, both of which you received from Aspera. Click Save to finish.
